Proprioception and Balance Training
Many of our patients limit their day to day performance and increase their risk for falls through lack of training of their balance systems. Over time, subtle loss of strength, lack of attention to training of support muscles, and a simple lack of activities that challenge your balance and proprioception systems can lead to tripping, stumbling, and lack of confidence on your feet.
Balance and vestibular rehabilitation involves a series of custom-designed exercises that help you re-train your neuromuscular system (muscle strength and dexterity, and the nerves that control them). Training in this way helps to reduce risk of injury, and improves your overall coordination.
